An informal list of the reference materials I used to write the biography, timeline, and alternate versions pages.
The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings, first edition
- I certainly don't have a copy of this, but I've culled information from Christopher Tolkien's remarks in Unfinished Tales
The Lord of the Rings, second edition
- I used dates from the "Annals of Aman" with a disclaimer.
The Peoples of Middle-earth
- notably "Of Dwarves and Men"
The Road Goes Ever On
(RGEO) - I don't have access to a copy of this, but I am familiar with the gist of the Galadriel-centric material, again partly thanks to Christopher Tolkien's quotage.
- specifically the unpublished LotR
The War of the Jewels
- used dates from "The Grey Annals," also with a disclaimer.
(UT) - especially "The History of Galadriel and Celeborn"
- alternate versions
